Though it may not be a business owner’s intention, when they take inadequate security measures, they could be inviting harm and increasing the risk of incidents involving criminal attack. This carelessness can in turn cause injury or fatality. And in such cases, being backed by an aggressive lawyer can be beneficial.

Certain things a business owner can do to ensure sufficient security include making sure the premises are well-lit, hiring security guards, getting security cameras, installing sturdy locks on doors and windows, and having alarms on the premises. When a business takes these measures, they should factor in whether the store is in a dangerous location or which type of business they are operating because these things can alter the level of security necessary for safety.

In the state of Illinois, negligent security cases oftentimes involve violent criminal attacks including rape, assault and battery, murder, robbery and even terrorism. Such cases have gone to court and business owners have been held responsible whether the event happened at a shopping center, bank, school, airline, parking lot, apartment building, nightclub, strip club, nursing home, etc.
